The schooner E. G. BENEDICT bound for Buffalo, struck the bar in trying to make Port Stanley, Ont., yesterday morning and went ashore east of the harbor. She now lies in about eight feet of water on a sandy bottom. The vessel is owned and commanded by Capt. Thomas L. Lucas of Windsor. Capt. William Berry of the life-saving station and a volunteer crew saved all of the crew this morning.
